Why I like Brockport: First, I like my academic program better here, than at my old school. Second, It's much easier to get involved here. I have been involved more in one semester here than I was in three there, and I Love It.
A bit of advice: Don't be afraid to introduce yourself and put yourself out there. Once you get to know a few people, they will introduce you to more, and give you both social and academic information about the school and area.

Stacey

Hometown: grow up in Albion NY live in Batavia NY
I like being a student at Brockport because its feels like a tight nit community. I know when ever I need help there are people that will help me either themselves or directing me to the person or people  that can.
Advice I'd give any student transferring into Brockport get involved in campus activities. Doing so you'll get to know more people, you'll have things to do outside of schoolwork, and it will help you to become apart of the Brockport community!
